My work, taken as a whole, is about attending to the ordinary but oft-overlooked things that define our experience of the world, or my particular experience of the world. The subject matter of my paintings and prints varies widely, from cityscapes to landscapes to local trees and birds to human figures. What the different series have in common is an intentional tarrying with the objects, people, images, and scapes that figure prominently on the limited horizon of my life.
I live and work in Charlottesville, Virginia. I was trained as an oil painter, but more recently I have been working in a variety of media including gouache and ink, acrylic, watercolor pencil, as well as photography and collage.
